The village of Ilichevo in Crimea is blocked by Russian enforcers due to their “anti-terrorism exercises”.
This was announced by activist Zaire Smedlyaev.
He turned attention to the fact that the exercises were held in the days of the Muslim holiday of Oraza Bairam.
“The Russian authorities cannot help making a gift to Muslims in their holiday of Oraza Bairam. The village of Ilichevo is set up with checkpoints. People can’t leave it to traditionally congratulate friends and relatives during the holiday. Outraged Muslims ask whether it will not be impossible to visit loved ones during the Christian holidays, too” wrote Smedlyaev in Facebook.
